As a "several years" shopper at ALDI, I feel they offer great value in most of their foods. The few times I've taken anything back for replacement or refund, they've been courteous and quick to accommodate me.
(Particularly in the Burlington, NC store, where I've shopped consistently for over 3 years.) Occasionally they do get "rambunctious" in getting your selections into the cart quickly, but they've laughed with me and were careful when I might say, "Hey... careful with my potato chips, here... I don't want to have to eat them with a spoon!!"
Many items there are GREAT... the pre-formed hamburger patties (refrigerated, not frozen, packed in black tray w/clear wrap on top) are good...
their "Mama Cozzi's Pepperonin Pizza" (frozen; similar to a "Tombstone") is an absolute BARGAIN for only $1.99, which is less than half of the price of Tombstone; their potato chips are the best quality, lowest priced of ANY store's, bar none... Wal-Mart doesn't even compete w/them on stuff like this; the packaged vegetables are generally very good; their "old fashioned" style loaf bread @ .89 cents is a DEAL; they often have seasonal specialties that are interesting.... I think they're great!
NO, I don't work for them! lol!!
